Elway didn’t address the Broncos’ free agency plans, but that’s a pretty strong backing of Moreno as the featured runner. There’s little doubt Denver will add to the backfield before training camp. Elway’s comments suggest the target will be an upgrade on Moreno’s backups as opposed to direct competition.
Moreno has been hampered by nagging injuries since being the 12th pick in the 2009 NFL Draft. He has not yet rushed for 1000 yards in a season and was limited to 13 games last season.
